Research Description

The Legacy of Poverty and Race-Relations: A Case Study on Alachua County
With my project, I plan to examine the relationship between the evolution of race relations and poverty statistics in Alachua County. Through a series of qualitative and quantitative measurements, I plan to show the interrelated nature of these two variables. I then plan to apply the findings from this project to related counties in the nation, offering policy recommendations and solutions to areas with high levels of disparity in economic equality.
